Big Picture of Life
Near Slings Gap (aroung mile post 140) I found a wide shoulder on which to walk a few miles. The air was warm and very low in humidity but the woodland smells are what I remember first about this walk. Sometimes memories are so attached to smells! The decaying leaves and mountain breeze reminded me of hiking through the woods at home in Chesterfield County many years ago. The feeling of being transported back home, going back 40 years in time, seemed to take hold of me and the big picture of life brought a sense of rest and peace back into my minute by minute, detail oriented mentality.
